8 Stations of the Womb

 

1 – Sacred Elixir

I open and awaken my consciousness to realize the supreme gift of my Womb blood, that is the source of all life on earth and the only portal to bring life to the planet.

2 – Moon Tea

I am excited to create a practice (with my daughter, sister relative or friend) to return our blood to the earth, in a chosen place, whether in a pot plant, or a garden. By using a natural sea sponge tampon (or similar) and making moon tea in a special teapot of beauty.

3 – Honoring my Blood

I let go the need to hide or ignore my bleeding time, or blame it for “crankiness”.

I will not act as if there is nothing spectacular happening within me!

4 – Power Shift

I begin to embrace & celebrate the increased consciousness I feel in my Soulful Womb Blood, through the waxing of the moon.

Luminus dreaming, stronger feelings, and emotions, increased sensitivities and a deeper connection to all. Or simply, lively creation energies emerging.

5 – Releasing from Abuse

I am ready to dedicate time to meditate on releasing personal, historic & karmic abuse, during the waning moon.

These block me from reaching my potential.

At the foot of a waterfall or in a bath tub with meteorites & Epson salts, lodestones, I visualize the weight of the water drawing out toxins. I use the luminous structure meditation to support this work.

This practice allows space for pure new life to enter.

6 – Feminine Power of Creation

After daily releasing for 2 weeks, I am ready, during the waxing moon, to sit in a warm nurturing Dark space, in silence.

This safe and protected space was previously cleared and cleansed. I can open my heart and soul and receive the blessings of the Feminine Creation energies, of the cosmic mother, directly.

I can feel my womb blood imprinted with her Wisdom, like a strong current surging through the water. I realize that these are Soulful energies that enliven the earth and all on it!

7 – Elementals

I honor the Elementals and develop a loving relationship with each one.

These four are my friends and companions in the work of creating anything Sacred.

The Fire ‘burns off” the water gathers & imprints, the earth & the crystals store knowledge and the air move energy (research this further in your own time).

8 – Pure New Life

I am ready to dedicate a half hour each day of my moon time, with my daughter or friend or solo, in a sanctuary or at an altar of my creation.

Use the Luminus structure med to gather in and listen to the voice of the Earth, the Cosmos and the Ocean.

As I release, my womb becomes void and is a pure clean ground for new pure life to enter.

Therefore, this is my sweet time to create beauty. I am like a sponge now. So I ask my family to support my work for the next two weeks.

Musings on the Need for Balance

Siberian ShamanThere is a view, it seems that pits white culture against indigenous cultures that live with reverence towards nature and therefore towards the feminine principal and women themselves.

The white culture is extremely patriarchal and so we have all, men and women, indeed lost touch with the feminine within, and so subjugate nature based cultures, and label them undeveloped.

The positive aspects of the masculine are mostly buried today and the negative aspects have gone wildly destructive, without positive feminine qualities engaged, to sustain balance.

What I feel both types of societies have forgotten is that this white culture too was once nature based, one holding great reverence for nature and the feminine and was thus balanced and more harmonious than now.

White women and men, of power and influence, were part of a thriving European nature based culture. Yes even white women had moon lodges and birthing temples and Witches were held in high esteem for their beautiful healing and midwifery skills.

Yes even white women were landowners and farmers. White men were not seen as weak to shed a tear and to honor their emotions! There was less pressure on them to be “superior and hard hearted”. It’s difficult to believe that white men, in the past, shared equally with women in business, property ownership, decision making, prophecy, philosophy, higher learning etc.

Yet it is true. We have been steered away from remembering our true history.

Many white women today are reaching out to learn from all who are in tune with their inner feminine, no matter the gender or culture, to remember who they are!

In Europe it has been at least 3000 years since this balance existed, at least in pockets! …it is long lost, and difficult to access. Most recently, its worst state of fear of the feminine was in the middle ages, during the 300 years of witch burnings, led by our white brothers (and supported by some white sisters).

This newly blossoming search for the Inner Divine Feminine is being eagerly sought by women, and some men, of many cultures today.

Now I realize I have omitted the other patriarchal cultures that oppress the feminine spirit, such as the Middle East, and India and China. I am focusing this musing to, white verses “colonies” because the white culture went out to conquer, convert and destroy other nations. So as a white woman healer, artist and spiritual feminist, I do not align myself with my white brother’s history and feel estranged from them.

I am rejoicing to see this trend coming, of the return of the Divine Feminine and to see white men being attracted to it, even though in small numbers! This movement knows no boundaries and embraces all and everyone as equal and that is why it feels right. The Feminine principal in women holds the direct link to pure Soul energy.

Creations of profound beauty cannot be birthed on earth without a deep connection to a purified Feminine Soul, together with a loving heart.

There are two qualities within the Masculine and Feminine principals, which are confused on a “popular” level I feel. The Masculine principal holds divine and not so divine qualities, as does the Feminine. The patriarchal culture makes the mistake of holding up to the light the positive aspect of itself and the negative aspects of the Feminine.

In this way the positive, or rather divine aspects of the Feminine, have been lost, silenced or distorted.

For example in our current culture, the sun is seen as life giving and the moon is seen as destructive. If we lived in a Matriarch (which would be just as awful in reverse) the moon would be life giving and the sun destructive, both are wrong.

In a balanced view, the moon would be known to cause things to grow round and full and low, and gather in and magnify all the beauty. The Sun would be seen as what forms and finishes and give divine order to all the beauty that the Feminine creates. In our coming Egalitarian culture (as prophesied by the Mayan) this will come to be realized and lived.

I am not denying the destructive aspects of the sun and moon. The sun and its light can burn, overexpose, dry up and kill. Without the gentle, quiet, protective Darkness, to reflect in and restore oneself in, we would die. The Moon also can attract negative energies and magnify that! So we have four active aspects to show the contrast in life.

I am grateful to the Indigenous people for preserving, against all odds, the Feminine Soul Wisdom, within their heritages, and in sharing it with those who seek truth and in helping us remember where it lies…in our wounded, shattered souls.

I am grateful for the re-discovery of the Sanskrit Palm Leaves in India and of the Inca tradition of the Womb, kept sacred and hidden until the 1970’s.
